Galatians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer

Overview

Letters are substitutes for physical presence. Though the Apostle Paul wrote from a great distance, his letters to the churches in Galatia and Thessalonica are charged with characteristic energy and passion. They ably address very specific problems that had emerged in the new congregations of believers.

Overview

Letters are substitutes for physical presence. Though the Apostle Paul wrote from a great distance, his letters to the churches in Galatia and Thessalonica are charged with characteristic energy and passion. They ably address very specific problems that had emerged in the new congregations of believers. While the Galatians wrestled with the relationship between Jewish law and Christian teaching, the Thessalonians were confused about when Christ would return. Paul responds to his readers, both then and now, with clear instructions on how Christians should live: celebrating their freedom, mindful of the call to holiness, remaining joyful in all circumstances, and looking forward to the hope of glory.
